(warning-may contain clues)
Slightly over a year ago I washed up the nerve to start this blog. It was draining to say the least. I was so very nervous about a lot of things pertaining to the soapy business of writing a blog. I didn't want to end up just another dish rag on a stack of dishes. I was determined to stand out in the crowd. So for quite some time I became a lurcher. You know, blog hopping, eaves dropping, commenting a time or two. All the while thinking that when the day came for ME to finally hit the old publish button...what was I going to NAME MY BLOG??
It was crystal clear that I needed a name that was different. Yet I wanted it to reflect a little of what I was all about. My love of antiques and primitives came to mind. Also my rug hooking hobby was something I wanted to share. And there's this little secret soaking in the background that I haven't really touched on much in my blog posts. I am a closet interior decorator. OH YES! I love to design and decorate homes, rooms, bathrooms, studios, kitchens (clears throat).. Those blogs that feature room makeovers and crafty bloggers doing it on a budget really get my water running! So I am just now coming out of the closet on that.
Now as for the color orange. I never really considered it one of my favorite colors. I'm getting in deep water here. I have always had to have a touch of red somewhere in the house. I can live with a little red. Another favorite color is green. I also adore white, as in soapy bubbles white.
Oh and we mustn't forget photography, my new hobby. Taking after my mentor and sweet husband Dave....I have developed a fascination with picture taking. I have to admit sometimes it's easier to let a good photo do my communicating. I like to play with words but know at times I sound like a leaky faucet(drip) so rely on a good photo to keep my blog lively.
One thing that just blows my sprayer is seeing that I have 75 followers now! Okay, one is myself and a couple are my friends who I begged to follow when I first began. But seriously I have a gaggle of rug hookers and true artists who are following me. It puts the pressure on a girl. I want my blog to have content, more than just a few morsels of leftovers hanging around the bottom. In the days ahead I hope to take you with me down the pipes of my imagination. It's a place I need to explore so hopefully the Universe is listening and you faithful out there will slosh around a bit with me.
So, if you haven't thrown in the towel yet and are still following me, I hope to put all this in perspective and reveal why I chose this insinuative name for my blog. I promise you from the deepest basins of my heart, you won't be disappointed. If you can check back tomorrow ( LOL) my lovelies, old Orange Sink is finally going to COME CLEAN!
